Interviews

Bain’s interview process involves a series of case and experience interviews to help us get to know you better. Since each of the case interviews will entail a discussion of an actual Bain case, you will also gain some insights into what it is like to work at Bain. We encourage you to prepare for your case interviews.

In the experience interview, your interviewer will ask traditional resume and behavioral questions, as well as questions about a mini-case based on your experiences, to better understand you and your interest in Bain. If you do not receive an experience interview, you should expect experience interview-type questions in your case interviews.

candidates will participate in up to two rounds of interviews; each round will have two or three 45-60 minute interviews.

First round
You will meet with two Bain consultants or managers on your university’s campus, in our office or over the phone if you are invited to interview with Bain.

The bulk of the first round of interviews will revolve around the discussion of Bain cases. Your interviewer will present a short business problem and then ask you to structure the problem and recommend a practical solution.

Your interview may kick off with an opportunity to share your achievements and future goals. You should also have time at the end to ask your interviewer questions.

Second round
Those successfully passing the first round will participate in a second round of interview, typically in our office. You will meet with Bain managers, principals or partners during this final round, which will consist of two or three 45-60 minute case and experience interviews.
